The communities, programs and properties of Williamsville, NY-based Presbyterian Senior Care of Western New York will become part of Getzville, NY-based Beechwood Continuing Care under an agreement reached by the two not-for-profit organizations.

“After very careful consideration and many conversations, we chose Beechwood because it closely aligns with our culture and is a mission-driven, faith-based organization like ours,” PSCWNY President and CEO Karin Ziegler said in a statement. “We are pleased that we will move forward with another not-for-profit, and one that has such an outstanding reputation in the western New York community.”

PSCWNY was incorporated in 1957. The organization employs 85 people who serve almost 250 people in its communities. All employees in PSCWNY communities will retain their jobs, and all residents will maintain their current living arrangements, according to the organization.

Beechwood will assume the assets and liabilities of PSCWNY, which include the Ken-Ton Presbyterian Village affordable housing independent living community in Kenmore, NY; the Presbyterian Village at North Church independent living community in Williamsville, NY; and the Lockport Presbyterian Home adult care facility in Lockport, NY. The enriched housing program at Ken-Ton Presbyterian Village also is included in the agreement.

“We are excited about the opportunity to expand our footprint and scope of services by including the unique, high-quality communities of PSCWNY in our continuum of care,” Beechwood President Daniel O’Neill said in a statement.

Beechwood affiliates include the Asbury Pointe independent living community in Getzville, NY; Blocher Homes assisted living community in Williamsville, NY; the Wesley Rehabilitation Center in Getzville, NY; and the Beechwood Homes, a nursing home in Amherst, NY.
